An Appreciation of Cosmotheism

PostThu Aug 22, 2013 1:17 pm

A blogger who calling himself Brandon who seems to be a kind of Gnostic Christian mystic (excuse me, Brandon, if I've wrongly interpreted you!) has written about Cosmotheism recently. Even though he gets some facts wrong (for example, he seems to think I am still associated with the National Alliance), he speaks respectfully and sees the necessity of a spiritual foundation for a White renaissance. Here's what he said:

I recently discovered William Pierce’s Cosmotheism Trilogy, which I thought quite interesting, as I also have been writing in a similar vein, particularly in his first essay of the trilogy called The Path. It’s written in a somewhat poetic/mystical manner, similar to the manner in which I write, in metaphor and symbolism. For those interested, it can be found here: http://archive.org/details/CosmotheismT ... therPierce Also, to give credit where credit is due, Kevin Alfred Strom over at National Alliance has a lot of Pierce’s writings.

Pierce expressed the importance of a “spiritual” foundation for our Idea, as I call it - White Nationalism, Ethnonationalism, etc. He apparently believed in the necessity of a “religious” or spiritual foundation for our “movement, and without such a foundation, we would not be successful. He talked about a Creator and his view of the visible universe as the manifestation of that Creator. He referred to the universe and all it contained as The Whole, of which we are a part. I won’t go into the ‘whole’ thing here as the reader can read it for himself. I am merely paraphrasing some of what I read. I don’t do detailed descriptions and exact quotations.

Most of us are not gifted with Spiritual understanding, as that gift is only given to few. That’s ok. Apparently he-Pierce-had that gift. I could tell by the manner in which he wrote, for the Spiritual cannot be described unless you get into what I call indirect speech. Of course when one does that he is considered by many others as a crazy man who speaks gibberish, not knowing or understanding the language he speaks….like that certain crazy man of antiquity who spoke in “parables”.

In his writings Pierce shows that he has done some reading and studying in the mystics of antiquity as I also have. If you compare his writings on what I call earthly subjects; ie, crime, immigration, jews, etc., etc., with his writing of The Path, it looks like the writings of two different people. The second and third essays in his trilogy appear “less spiritual” and more “down to earth”.

Pierce was correct about the necessary spiritual foundation for our thing. There will be no success without it. It is enough that only a few “get it”. That’s ok. There is only a few “mystical priests”; ie, those who can “see” into spiritual things. They are “stand ins” for the majority, and act as legal representatives before the Creator’s Bar.

The Spiritual foundation which Pierce writes of then places the Creator’s stamp of approval on our Idea, thereby causing it’s ultimate success. If you criticize and ridicule writings such as what Pierce wrote in this essay, you place yourself among the rest of those outsiders who accuse and ridicule us, therefore will have to undergo the mental transformation which comes through adversity.

The Creator is the Power or Will or as Pierce calls it, the Urge to Become. We align ourselves with this Power/Will/Urge to Become through self control following Natural Law in our individual lives.

I know it is difficult for some to see anything positive or worthy of optimism in the present evil system we see with natural eyes around us. By looking AT the situation you make it stronger. By SEEING THROUGH IT TO THE ULTIMATE GOOD PURPOSE BEHIND IT, you not only overcome what seems to be too strong for us to conquer, but you, along with the many others of us doing the same thing, bring into manifestation the Idea we are working for.

The mental bars put up against the idea that there may be a good purpose behind the evil perceived by the senses is very strong and difficult to overcome. There is a saying or law which says, “You become like that which you intensely gaze upon or give a substantial amount of time to”. The ancient writer wrote it as: “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he”.

Kevin, I missed this piece when you posted it and just now found it for the first time. Brandon has a good grasp of what Dr. Pierce intended with Cosmotheism. As for the necessary spiritual basis of Cosmotheism, we put up an article by Dr. Pierce here in December: http://williamlutherpierce.blogspot.com ... -have.html

I'm not sure if it has been posted here at WB, but it should be. Here's how he ended that piece, written 37 years ago:
---

...I said our spiritual program is a prerequisite for our political program, but it is not just a prerequisite, not merely a prerequisite. It stands on its own. In fact, if I had to say which program is of more fundamental importance, I would immediately say it is our spiritual program.

If, by some miracle, we could carry out our political program directly, without a general spiritual reorientation fist, I would have no faith in the results. They would not last. But as long as our community survives, as long as there are at least one man and one woman of our race left who are committed to our Truth and able to raise their children and pass that Truth on to them, then even if this country were obliterated utterly, even if Western civilization were obliterated utterly, I would still have confidence in the future and in the eventual implementation of a new version of our political program, no matter how long that might take.

While only "a few" get the spiritual aspect of Cosmotheism, I believe it highly important that those who do get it do what is necessary to help others understand the spiritual aspect of Our Cause, and of course, our Path. Building up our core of well-educated men and women of our race can only help us grow organically.

Recently, I had a conversation with a spiritually inclined man of our race who is willing but having a bit of difficulty getting through some of Pierce's speeches on Cosmotheism in order to come to full understanding. I felt a bit at a loss as to how to help, but ad libbed somewhat by mentioning that the explanation of our values, ethics, and goals through some other articles and speeches we have at our disposal from National Vanguard magazines of the past including the Best of Attack! and National Vanguard tabloid which is now available online, some of the excellent ADV broadcasts from years past that Dr. Pierce gave through the Power of Truth series of CDs, and a few other volumes might help and then perhaps he could revisit the Cosmotheist articles at a later date.

It occurred to me that a better structure of helping our people come to a fuller understanding is still needed, as well as specific examples of what I needed in the above mentioned conversation. Perhaps some more learned minds here on this forum could help out with helping novices understand Cosmotheism from the beginner's point of view by offering opinions on specific articles, broadcasts, and so on.
